The 2017 festival — the eleventh edition — will be the biggest and best yet. More than 250 sessions, more than 600 speakers, five full days of high-octane immersion in journalism — in and out of the festival venues — all in the stunning setting of the historic town centre of Perugia.
Festival speakers come from all over the planet. So too the attendees. All festival sessions are free entry for all attendees, without any need for registration.
About 200 volunteers will take part, involved in activities such as event reviews, speaker interviews, logistics, press office, etc. The volunteers — journalism students, aspiring journalists or journalists at the beginning of their careers — this year come from 27 different countries: Argentina, Australia, Bangladesh, Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Canada, Czech Republic, Egypt, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Cameroon, India, Iraq, Italy, Netherlands, Pakistan, Poland, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Turkey, UK, Ukraine.
The festival programme is the result of the input of many different individuals, organisations, institutions and media companies.
